Tusk sets out EU's Brexit Negotiating stance

  • European Council President Donald Tusk has called on the UK to come up with a "serious response" on what will happen to EU citizens in Britain after Brexit.

    "We need guarantees," he said in Brussels as 27 EU leaders backed the bloc's Brexit negotiating guidelines.

    The rights of EU citizens to live, work and study in the UK is one of three topics they want dealt with in the first phase of Brexit talks.

    Negotiations will start after the UK election on 8 June.


    So, the EU are having their meeting this weekend and have now agreed their Brexit negotiation guidelines against us. Bring it on, I say!

    Of course the issue of rights for EU citizens here is important, but I hope our stance will be that these people do not have a automatic right to permanent residence in the UK if they do not work. If they want to stay here, really they should apply for citizenship.

    History is much like an Endless Waltz. The three beats of war, peace and revolution continue on forever.

  • Great cartoon!

    Problem is we're committed to paying "some" money into the EU while we're still part of it, otherwise they cannot set their budget, not that they ever stick to it...

    So, perhaps it may not be 50 billion, but it's going to be a lot we get sniffed with.
